Diving in Deeper
In the United States, 70% of Americans believe another Civil War could occur in today’s political climate. And it is easy to understand why. Civil and racial unrest. Three impeachments in the last four presidencies. A partisan divide perhaps greater than that of the American Civil War.
What are our “divorce” options as a country? What can two groups of people do when they can’t seem to agree on anything?
They can essentially:
Find Common Ground and Stay in the Marriage;
Divorce Their Partner on Good Terms;
Or Divorce Their Partner on Bad Terms.
The "devil" or "cancer" in our divorce story are those academics who have pitted millions of Americans against each other.
